Dear the officer in charge, Here is the explanation of why I want to study in Canada and how such study relates to my future. I have worked as a xxxx xxxxxxxx for xx years in Japan. Now I have some plans to participate in voluntary activities in other countries where my career will help the xxxx xxxxxx there. Although I have got some reading skills through my profession, it is still very hard for me to communicate with foreign people in English. So it is essential for my next step of life to improve my English abilities, especially in hearing and speaking. There are some reasons why I selected Canada as a place to study English. First of all, I love this country and people there. Every time I made holiday trip to Canada since 19xx, they welcomed me much and I could enjoy my stay in local towns as well as in big cities. Secondly, I have some friends who have studied in Canada before. They all told me that I should stay longer and study English there. Thirdly, I am interested in culture of Canadian native people. And finally, Canada is a safe place for Asian students because there seems be much more respect to foreign people and cultures than in such countries as the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia. I sincerely hope you will give me the opportunity to study in your country. Thank you. Sincerely, (Signeture) XXXX XXXXX.
